I have already posted one comment which hopefully reads with good humour. Maybe some of you want to chip in and stick up for our cars.

Rebuild Write up

As someone suggested earlier I have started to write up all those fiddly jobs on the Sierra rebuild on Mr'G's forums to save them getting lost in theis one or cluttering it up.

patting myself on the back.

The Beast of Blackrod rides again. Made it up the drive and back a few times under its own power, brakes need attention but that was expected after a two year layup. Still have a lot of wiring to do behind the dash but I'm a happy chappie.…

Thanks to Dave T for pointing out the obvious grot on the splined part of the input shaft which I blatantly missed when assembling the engine and box the first and second times... :-)

New wheels

Going to Bolton tomorrow to collect some allycat wheels for Peggy. If anyone is interested in the Wolfrace Street Octanes shown in my picture, let me know. They're 100/108 PCD, 15", 6/5" (185mm tyres) and ET35 offset with plenty of tread. Otherwise they'll go on ebay.
